Helping Investors Compound Wealth More Efficiently

About Global Portfolio Dimensions, Inc.

Global Portfolio Dimensions, Inc. provides independent, objective, fiduciary investment counsel and strives to help investors compound wealth more efficiently. We design portfolios for investors using an institutional investment style at an efficient cost. We don?t sell commission-based products, use wrap-fee programs, or make our clients pay for expensive outsourcing services.

Billions of dollars in fees are paid every year to investment managers pursuing ?alpha,? or increased returns over a passive benchmark through security selection and market timing. Studies show that active investment management adds little value in after-fee performance. The great majority of investor returns over time are attributable to movements of the market itself and asset class policy. Active management is a zero-sum game and usually results in uncompensated risk.

We seek higher expected returns as necessary by targeting risk factors, diversified sources of increased expected return and risk. For example, small cap and value stocks have higher expected returns and risk over the stock market as a whole. For fixed income, longer maturities and corporate bonds provide the ?term? and ?credit? risk premiums. We also include other asset classes like REITs and Emerging Markets that typically offer diversification benefits through lower correlations or dissimilar price movements. We target risk factors using low cost institutional class open-end funds and ETFs and charge lower fees commensurate with a ?beta? philosophy.

The degree to which we target these risk factors is based solely on client return and risk objectives and constraints which are documented in a written investment policy statement.
